“It will be a small, intimate wedding,” a source told Us Weekly. “It’s going to be very elegant and classic.”
A later celebration is planned for Shevell’s home turf of Manhattan, a source told Us.
The music legend, 69, proposed to Shevell, 51, a transportation heiress, in April with a reported $650,000 engagement ring.
This will be Shevell’s second marriage and McCartney’s third. His first wife, Linda, died of cancer in 1998 at age 56. They had four children together, including designer Stella McCartney. The singer’s second marriage to Heather Mills, which produced daughter Beatrice, ended in a messy divorce in 2008 and the famously frugal Beatles singer had to fork over a reported $35 million.
That hasn’t stopped him from falling in love again and reportedly rebuffing a prenuptial agreement.
Shevell’s own wealth is only part of the reason McCartney is eschewing a prenup, Popeater’s Rob Shuter told ABCNews.com. “Paul is saying, ‘This girl is not Heather,’” he said.
“She’s a very, very different lady than Heather Mills,” Shuter said. “She’s incredibly wealthy and successful in her own right.”
